If I don’t write and illustrate for some time, then I begin to question who I am  (Picture Books Quotes) The illustrations in picture books are the first paintings most children see, and because of that, they are incredibly important. What we see and share at that age stays with us for life.  (Picture Books Quotes) You’ll notice that my books offer great variety. Some are for adults, some for children and some for teens. There are mysteries, historical novels, picture books, love stories and stories of crisis and courage.  (Picture Books Quotes) I’ll be left writing picture books and fairy tales  (Picture Books Quotes) ... what a fatal thing in pictures, books, or human lives, is a lack of proportion  (Picture Books Quotes) I picture several reviewers of my own books as passing a long future lodged between Brutus and Judas in the jaws of Satan  (Picture Books Quotes) I write books, I write for comic books, I give lectures... I live. And when the opportunity comes to do a picture, I do a picture  (Picture Books Quotes) All really good picture books are written to be read five hundred times  (Picture Books Quotes) Picture books are an emotional medium. They need to make us feel something  (Picture Books Quotes) Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older  (Picture Books Quotes) The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?  (Picture Books Quotes) I love picture books.

For example, there is no sense in sending a picture book text to a publisher who does not publish picture books  (Picture Books Quotes) I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I’m drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real  (Picture Books Quotes) I hope to encourage more children to discover and love reading, but I want to focus particularly on the appreciation of picture books…. Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the words, a gap that is filled by the reader’s imagination, adding so much to the excitement of reading a book  (Picture Books Quotes) I can’t think of a story that doesn’t have something terrible in it. Otherwise, it’s dull. So when I embarked into the world of picture books, my first thought was to do something about the dark  (Picture Books Quotes) Remember picture books are the closest form of writing to a poem. Even though they don’t have to rhyme, they must be poetic. They must be written so the worst actress can read with comfort and expression  (Picture Books Quotes) I like the idea of being involved in pictures that can entertain the entire family and can stimulate youngsters into looking at picture books. There’s nothing wrong with that  (Picture Books Quotes) I did have a child, and I was reading a lot of picture books to her, but at the same time writing a children’s book was something that I’d been wanting to do for many years, pretty much since the start of my career  (Picture Books Quotes) I never spent less than two years on the text of one of my picture books, even though each of them is approximately 380 words long.
